For the Berlin Dadaists, their identity as a collective - Club Dada - was an integral part of their artistic practice. The circumstances that brought together the likes of George Grosz, John Heartfield, Raoul Hausmann, and Johannes Baader-renamed Propaganda Marshall, Monteurdada, Dadasoph, and Oberdada within the organization-have remained largely unexamined until now. Drawing on extensive archival research, this book documents the group's beginnings in wartime Berlin and reveals how these relationships influenced its provocative acts, which were inextricably tied to the era's chaos and brutality.
